2/8/2006: Hippo versus antelope











Great set of shots, apparently from photographer Ulrich Brodde, were found at this LiveJournal site via the double-secret Cellar LiveJournal Image Retrieval System.

Awesome shots!

I'm guessing antelope, but I'm not sure what kind. The big hawg looks toothless, so maybe they have anticipated this clash of the titans/morons. No word on how it all turned out so I decided not to wait for Friday. Happy Wednesday.

I like how the antelope's expression never changes.

That might be a sable.

They can kill lions, I hear.

You don't think about hippos being aggressive. Rhinos, yes, they have that horn, but hippos? They're ugly cute, they have a funny-sounding name, and they wear tutus and dance in Disney Cartoons.

The antelope looks like it's reading the back of a cereal box. Completely placid.

The danger of a hippo is that its teeth are razor sharp on the sides, and it's generally accepted that more people die of hippos in Africa than any other mammal.

Also, the son of a bitch can weigh three metric tonnes.

The last shot looks like the horned creature is about to ram one of the horns through the hippo's mouth and out the left nostril. Ouch.

Based on the scars all over the hippo's side, I'd say this is a common event.

There are lots of great/interesting shots at this site. I wish I could read whatever language it is in.

That antelope thing is SO damn beautiful. and that hippo looks so cute in the first shot.

It looks like they are in a zoo.. so i am sure the keepers wouldnt let anything too drastic happen.

A classic example of horny meets fat.

The bittersweet outcome of this combo will be basically forgotten by daybreak.
